It is beautiful here in Mamaroneck so here are the outdoor pics of Duffys. Please note that I know nothing about photography so I took as many shots as I could moving the diorama around so the sunlight hit all sides. A noted forum member told me to photograph the H out of it so I hope you guys don't mind that there are a lot of pics. Again thanks to all on the forum for your very nice compliments on this build.

Kevin, Fantastic workmanship on this model. You are to be commended for a superb job well done. An inspiration to be sure.

Kevin -- Your diorama is the trademark of a certified model craftsman. My thanks for creating it, presenting it and inspiring many of us.

Beautifully done Kevin. Even though you caused the price of this kit to rise on eBay so that I cannot afford one right now, I really enjoyed following along on this build . I know I'll be returning to the thread to pick up a few tips.

I am going to miss watching your Duffy's thread. Thanks for taking the time to post all of the photos & your helpful ideas. You have done a great job building this great kit. You have inspired me to try to find it & build it for myself.

Thanks to the one and only "Forum Philosopher". You always point out stuff that I never see (the shadows under the trestle). You are the best!!
Thanks, Kevin

Nothing like that big ol' candle in the sky to bring out the exceptional care and skills you put into this diorama. The deep shadows really make it POP 3-dimensionally like no other light source can.

Just to discuss one aspect of so very, very many that speaks to me: The closeup of the coal bins beneath the trestle, just check out that incredible array of shadow shapes projected onto the walls etc. from the overhead structure. Pure abstraction going on there. And the fine job on the tractor paint and weathering shows clearly how well done just this one detail is.

Overall, it passes the ultimate test, standing up proudly to the light of day. Everything seems just right, not a flaw to behold.

It's been a treat to follow this build over time. I look forward to your progress on your new build, the Pile Driver.

One of your fans,
Stevie O'

Wow ! That diorama looks absolutely fantastic... I remember when this build was first started !! What a great finish.
TrainClown Posted - 03/24/2007 : 6:43:41 PM
Terrific diorama! I really like it.

Lots to look at.

onl26 Posted - 03/24/2007 : 6:41:35 PM
Thanks everyone for the great compliments and yes I plan on bringing Duffys to the CSS show along with a few other things hopefully.

A beautifully done diorama, Kevin. Thanks for the photos.

Thank you Kevin for all the pleasure you gave us sharing your work this way.

Outstanding workmanship. I get so much inspiration from your work. I can't wait to photograph my kit outdoors. Unfortunately today it is snowing so I'll have to wait. It would be very enjoyable spotting a car on that trestle. Thanks for the exceptional pics. In one of your comments in your post, did you mention you would be at the craftsman structure show with this kit? Or maybe I am thinking of someone else's thread.....

Wonderful modeling and great pictures Kevin, congratulations.
Chester Posted - 03/24/2007 : 5:33:46 PM
Man, that looks great and the closer you get, the better it looks. Really a fine job Kevin.
Mike Hamer Posted - 03/24/2007 : 5:29:38 PM
Thanks for displaying your outdoor photos, Kevin. Indeed, natural sunlight is not forgiving and your modelling has stood up to the challenge!
